Celebrity Breakup Makeovers


Katy Perry

Katy Perry’s recent bob may or may not be an ode to her newly single life, but psych professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Judith Waters, says when it comes to a breakup makeover its important to find a new look that will fit your normal lifestyle.

Kim Kardashian

She was only married for 72 days, but it didn’t take too long after filing the divorce papers before showing off a new look. Note to Kim: a new hairstyle with bangs won’t make the world forget about your joke of a marriage.


Scarlett Johansson

“Looking good is the first, easiest and least expensive way to begin a program of personal rehabilitation,” says Waters. ScarJo’s bob after her divorce from Ryan Reynolds is a prime example of a sexy post-breakup look. 

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde and her hubby broke up in early 2011 and not long after she swapped her shiny locks for a bangin’ new ‘do.

Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad went through two big changes last summer: She broke up with her boyfriend, actor Kyle Howard, and she traded in her two-toned, sunkissed locks for light blue and silver highlights.

Ashley Greene

Right before this Twlight star called it quits with boyfriend Joe Jonas, she started rocking a darker and edgier hair color. Perhaps, foreshadowing what was to come…

Ashlee Simpson

Waters says that getting positive results from a change in your appearance will help boost confidence. Considering how fierce Ashlee Simpson’s looked lately, we’re guessing she’s gotten tons of positive feedback with her post-divorce pixie.

The Year’s Most Amazing Movie Makeovers

Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe
Michelle Williams’ transformation from indie Brooklynite to Hollywood’s beloved bombshell is the most notable movie makeover in a year when biopic metamorphoses were abundant. From Leo’s J. Edgar and Meryl’s Iron Lady, to Glenn Close in drag and Rooney Mara’s gothic undertaking, we’ve compiled the 10 Best Movie Makeovers you’ll be hearing about through awards season.

Glenn Close as Albert Nobbs
Glenn Close has already garnered Oscar buzz and a Golden Globe nod for her portrayal of Albert Nobbs, a woman living as a man in 19th century Ireland. Close tried to bring the character, originally born in short story, to the big screen for almost 30 years but worried that close-ups and HD would make it more difficult than a stage production. Judging by previews (the film hits theaters in January) Close has nothing to fear, except maybe a poorly written acceptance speech.

Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover
This award-season veteran may finally get his golden statue thanks to an Eastwood-directed makeover that spans decades, not to mention Whitehouse cabinets. While J. Edgar moved slowly through 2 ½ hours, Leo aged quickly from a twenty-something law student to the first director of the FBI. While his performance is impressive, if this is what Leo’s going to look like in 20 years all those VS models should jump ship.

Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher
An actress’s worst nightmare goes beyond Page Six scandals and duplicate dresses. A SAG member’s greatest horror is finding out she’s nominated in the same category as Meryl Streep. First Anna Wintour and now Margaret Thatcher, the screen legend takes on another infamously accomplished (and notoriously tough) cultural icon to the pleasure of film critics everywhere and the dismay of Oscar hopefuls.

Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander
Talk about method acting: Rooney Mara lives with her raven-hued faux hawk and nipple piercing, both required of her stint as Lisbeth Salander. Mara’s role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo earned the actress her first Golden Globe nomination and the privilege of being director David Fincher’s muse. Oh yea… and she got to role around naked with Daniel Craig. Some Goths have all the luck.

Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids
We’ve seen actresses get award-winning reverse makeovers (Clarlize Theron, Salma Hayek, Nicole Kidman), but none so funny as Melissa McCarthy’s Guy Fieri-inspired character in Bridesmaids. Megan, advertised as “The Wild Card,” is a rough talking, sex- obsessed sister-in-law who has brought McCarthy a breakout year and SAG nomination. While a bowling shirt and driving cap made her famous, we expect McCarthy to wear her signature floor-length evening gowns on this year’s red carpets.

Joseph Gordon Levitt in 50/50
JGL made aliens adorable (3rd Rock From The Sun) and sleep interesting (Inception) but his greatest feat came in 2011 when the actor made cancer funny. Playing a 27-year-old journalist diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Levitt shaved his head and quipped with Seth Rogan to deliver a touchingly tragic, yet hilarious performance. Too bad Oprah went off the air because this is a film custom tailored for her off-white couches.

Jessica Chastain as Celia Foote
Jessica Chastain has joined Hollywood’s in-crowd by playing a Jackson, Mississippi outsider. As the voluptuous and blonde Celia Foote, Chastain secured herself a spot in one of 2011’s biggest blockbusters, and a viable contender for Best Picture honors across the board. The real-life redhead also scored her own Best Supporting Actress nomination from the Hollywood Foreign Press.

Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud
The actor has spent most of his career playing sexy, danger-prone leading men, but his 2012 Golden Globe nod recognizes a character that is far more brain than brawn. In A Dangerous Method, Mortensen outshined Oscar-nominee Keira Knightley as Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis. While the doctor is commonly thought of in his later, frail and failing state, director David Cronenberg sought to cast the 50-year-old “handsome, masculine, and humorous” Freud. Well played, director.

Emma Stone as Skeeter Phelan
Emma Stone’s personal style has evolved over the past year from carrot-topped class clown to blonde bombshell, and back again. But as the star of The Help, Stone displayed her acting chops as well as her natural propensity for awkwardness. Freckles, kinky ginger hair, and her signature throaty voice that makes an audience wonder if she’s about to laugh or just has a sinus infection. Either way, the starlet shined as Skeeter Phelan and taught a generation of young viewers to appreciate their personal quirks.

Best Celeb Makeovers of 2011

Best Celeb Makeovers of 2011

Best Hair Makeovers of 2011

    Dianna Agron
    Dianna Agron took it all off this year–of her hair, that is. The Glee star was one of the few leading ladies who went from long to short without a hitch. The blonde bombshell absolutely nailed it with her new, edgy crop.

    Rooney Mara
    Rooney Mara kept the dark ‘do and blunt bangs from her role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and while we rarely (never?) approve a bowl cut, Mara proves us wrong by making it look sexy and fierce.

    Jennifer Lawrence
    Jennifer Lawrence was another actress who proved her chameleon-like ability to rock any hair color when she transformed from a blonde bombshell into a brunette beauty for her upcoming role in The Hunger Games.

    Nicole Richie
    Nicole Richie might be a natural brunette, but when she chopped off her hair earlier this year and dyed her locks blonde, we had to give her two thumbs up for the chic new look.

    Jennifer Aniston
    Jennifer Aniston’s hair is almost as famous as her, and when she makes the slightest change–like earlier this year when she chopped it off into a lob–people talk. The word on this new cut? LOVE it!

    Evan Rachel Wood
    After Evan Rachel Wood traded in her long locks for a short, edgy crop, we realized her hair is just like her acting. No matter what role or appearance it takes on, it always turns out phenomenally.

    Rose Byrne
    Aussie native, Rose Byrne, grabbed our attention twice this year. First, for her hilarious performance in Bridesmaids and second, for her new retro-inspired ‘do, complete with wide, eyebrow-grazing bangs.

    Leighton Meester
    Leighton Meester had every girl gossiping about her new look this year. After ditching the ombré for a chocolate hair color and wispy bangs, everyone was whispering just how much they wanted her new ‘do!

    Julianne Hough
    Julianne Hough took a big risk when she chopped off her gorgeous, long locks earlier this year. But the end result of a sophisticated, medium-length hairstyle couldn’t have turned out better!

    Emma Watson
    Emma Watson technically cut her hair in 2010, but it was this past year where she really let her new pixie shine–from her stunning U.S. Vogue cover to her campaign for Lancôme’s Trésor Midnight Rose.

Worst Makeovers of 2011

Drew Barrymore

When Drew first started growing her roots out, we could live with it. It even looked kind of rocker chic on her, but once she stopped doing her hair altogether, we were done!

Demi Moore

Demi Moore has always had a small frame, but she was looking downright frail soon before her divorce from Ashton Kutcher was announced. We hope she’s able to pack on some pounds and get back to a healthy size.

Khloe Kardashian

While we appreciate Khloe’s attempt to change up her look, we hated the red hair she started sporting in 2011. She must have been disappointed, too, because it didn’t take long for her to go back to her darker roots.

Ben Affleck

Not many male celebs have makeovers bad enough to make our list, but Ben somehow did it. While the actor/director is usually clean cut, he showed up this year looking more homeless than handsome.

Ali Lohan

This year, Ali made headlines when she appeared in front of cameras looking gaunt and surgically altered. Although she has denied claims of an eating disorder or plastic surgery, we still aren’t sure.

Vanessa Hudgens

We have one question: What was Vanessa Hudgens thinking?! She had the prettiest long hair before she decided to hack it off Justin Bieber style.

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett is another casualty of hair color gone bad. Her bad makeover is courtesy of a movie role, but we’re wondering why she went to an event with red dye stains on her forehead!

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato may have had a bad year, but it’s her wardrobe that took the real beating. From simple and pretty to garish and tacky, there isn’t an accessory on this planet that the singer doesn’t layer these days.

Blake Lively

It seems Leo DiCaprio isn’t just talented and gorgeous, he’s a great influence on others’ style. Blake dressed impeccably while with him, but as soon as the romance ended, so did her fashion sense.

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden was another victim of the extreme chop this year. While we love the blond hair, the cut is just too extreme, even on her cute face.
